Q: If I have Trouble With Drinking, Can't I Simply Reduce My Alcohol Use
Without Stopping Altogether?
That depends. If you are diagnosed as an alcoholic, the answer is "no."
Studies show that nearly all alcoholics who try to merely cut down on
drinking are unable to do so indefinitely. Instead, cutting out alcohol
(that is, abstaining) is nearly always necessary for successful recovery.
However, if you are not alcoholic but have had alcohol-related problems, you may
be able to limit the amount you drink.
